Slow Cooker Chicken Pot Pie Stew

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2009
I made a half recipe omitting the salt. Half just about filled up my whole crock pot! I wouldn't cut your chicken pieces too small as mine fell apart when stirring. Enjoyed it served over biscuits.

Chocolate Crinkles II

Reviewed: Oct. 27, 2009
Very good! This was just about the stickiest dough I've ever worked with. 45 minutes in the freezer got it solid enough to continue. Made into large balls for two sheets of 16. Perfect at 14 minutes. Yummmmmm.

Honey Graham Crackers

Reviewed: Jun. 5, 2010
Very bland, even topped with cinnamon sugar. The uncooked dough tasted MUCH better. Bummer.

Amazing Slow Cooker Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Jul. 14, 2012
I made this to try out a brand new replacement crock pot. Since it's summer and hot outside, I didn't want to try my usual crock pot fare (soups, etc) so I figured dessert would be nice! This had a very interesting texture at different parts. The outsides and bottom are inedible (to me) and rubbery. The top and middle are good, though still odd. I'm guessing others might have more luck depending on what kind of crock pot you have and how hot it runs. I won't be trying this again in mine, though. At least I know it works!

Disappearing Marshmallow Brownies

Reviewed: Oct. 26, 2010
Very good. I had to get my butterscotch blazing hot to completely melt, so unfortunately my chocolate chips melted when I stirred them in later. So I couldn't really taste the butterscotch, but oh well, they were nice and chewy and yummy! Had to bake for 25 minutes, at 20 the middle was still jiggly.

Deep Dish Alfredo Pizza

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
We did not like the crust, thus the low score. HOWEVER, the sauce is great! I've made it twice. This might be a given, but it is much better with "fresh" parmesan you buy in the bag in the dairy section, as opposed to the grated powder stuff in the green cylinders. Definite difference in texture.

Sweet Green Bean Bundles

Reviewed: Sep. 8, 2012
These tasted good but looked unappealing. I followed the directions, except for using fresh beans. At the end of the 45 minutes, the beans were a shriveled mess. I brought them to a pot luck and hardly anyone ate them. Such a waste of fresh beans and A LOT of bacon.

Chinese Chicken Fried Rice II

Reviewed: Nov. 8, 2010
WAY too much pepper. Otherwise pretty bland in flavor, but maybe the pepper was drowning it out for me. Going to have to chuck the leftovers. Bummer.

Bread Machine Focaccia

Reviewed: Apr. 2, 2010
Made almost exactly as written, using dried rosemary instead of fresh. Made some great paninis and yummy bread otherwise!

Delicious Ham and Potato Soup

Reviewed: Nov. 4, 2009
Very good and easy. I use unpeeled red potatoes. I just throw the first part in my crock pot for a few hours, then add the roux for another couple of hours.

Veronica's Apple Pancakes

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
These were okay, not amazing. Very dense and not light or fluffy like your typical pancake. I doubled the cinnamon and still couldn't really taste it. Based on other folks' reviews I was expecting something a little sweeter as well. They were quick to make and edible nonetheless.

Chicken Lo Mein

Reviewed: Oct. 19, 2009
This was okay. Almost good, but not great for the amount of effort. I liked the taste of the marinated chicken vs. chicken just thrown in there. I would try again with different noodles and maybe adding the oyster sauce if it's not too spendy!

To Die For Blueberry Muffins

Reviewed: Jul. 18, 2010
Very disappointing. Note I'm rating the actual recipe as written. The topping was entirely too heavy to allow the muffins to rise, despite only using half of what it actually makes. The topping caused the muffin middles to sink in and then majorly overflow the cups. They look disastrous, but taste okay. But still a low rating for recipe flaws.

Extreme Chocolate Cake

Reviewed: Apr. 19, 2010
Very good tasting cake, quite moist and dense. The batter is super runny, and at most about 1 1/2 inches deep after rising during baking. You'll definitely have to layer it. I did not try the frosting.

Chicken and Broccoli Braid

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
This was very good and easy. However, just using 1 tsp of dill weed (half what is called for) was a little too much for me. Otherwise, yummy.

Asian Orange Chicken

Reviewed: Mar. 18, 2010
This didn't turn out that great for me. This was most likely due to user error and lack of time. Definitely not comparable to Chinese take-out.

This was really REALLY easy! This was the first time I've ever made or tried using fondant and it worked beautifully. Plus, it tastes really good!
